  • Duckbill Tracks Instructions

    I just received a set of Mato duckbill tracks for my HL Sherman. Assembly instructions are supposedly online, but I haven't found them. These are double pinned track links. The pins are knurled on one end.

    I'm guessing the knurled edges go into alternate sides of the links, otherwise the links would just fall apart. Everything is real tight, so I don't want to randomly hammer away and damage anything. So, how do I do what I want to do?

    I've assembled them, with some advice from another forum. There is no secret method; hammers and a bench vise did it. i tested them on my trail, all works fine!
